project life week 5

Good morning! I am here today with my week 5 of Project Life:
This week was a kinda stressful week...and it seems oh so long ago now;) In the beginning of the year, we discussed and knew we needed to be doing something different financially. We were making ends meet and that is so not what we wanted or needed to be doing. So I was job hunting...for a better opportunity and I went on a couple interviews in Jacksonville, where my Mom and Step-Dad and my brother live. That would have meant moving, which would have been huge for us, but the job market here is slim pickings since the economy here is so tourist driven. Anyways...long story short...neither of the opportunities worked out and Shaun ended up finding better for himself here and we are slowly slowly on the path to a healthier financial future after a crippling change in Shaun's previous job almost 2 years ago.

So. That's that;) 
Other major happenings this week was that we had our first ever garage sale and it was a success! We advertised that it would start at 8 and we literally had people showing up at 6:45 a.m.! I learned that I am not good with people haggling...if they made me an offer, I just said okay, sure!  Afterwards, we took the kids to the store and picked out ice cream and all the fixings for sundaes as a reward for them being so good during the sale;)

In the top right 4x6 pocket, I trimmed down this drawing Aislynn did to fit in the pocket. That girl loves Harry Potter;)

Some close ups:
It is hard to take photos without the glare on the page protectors...any tips for me?
And that's that;) Have a great day!!

hello card

I have a quick share with you today...I have a card on the Jillibean Soup blog, so I thought I would share it here as well;)
I pulled out the old school decorative edge scissors for this. First, I used my 1" square punch and then chopped off a bit with the scissors. I made them all slightly different lengths to add a little more interest to the card;) This was a fun card to make!

Thanks for stopping by today, hope you all have a wonderful day!

kindergarten friends

Happy Monday!! It is a happy Monday for us because we are on Spring Break this week, yay!! This is also the first day that no one has work or school, since Shaun has started his new job, so we will be soaking up some family time;)

I typically don't mix and match collections that much, but I like how the colors of the Carta Bella Cool Summer and True Friends lines went together for this photo of Aislynn's last day of school last year:
After school, we met some of the kids from her kindergarten class at Seaside to grab ice cream and play. They had so much fun and it was such a wonderful end to the school year and an awesome hello to summer! It is hard to believe we are approaching the end of this school year fairly soon...then I will have a 2nd grader and a preschooler, yikes!

Oops, going off on a tangent;) Here are some detail shots:
